The geek in me loves Inauguration Day. I love the pomp, the ceremonies, the tradition and the history-in-the-making. I was completely glued to the tv yesterday watching all the goings-on.

Maybe I’m just a big, high-maintenance baby, but I… Continue reading Wrap me in Comfort
This past weekend, I had the parental pleasure of watching one of my girls in a musical production. She played six parts, yes six, and nailed them all, I’m happy to report.
